RB Leipzig vs Hoffenheim – Bundesliga: At the Red Bull Arena, Leipzig hosts Hoffenheim on a match of the Bundesliga’s 31st round
Of course that Bayern’s match and also Leverkusen vs Dortmund are also contenders for match of the round.
But, in my opinion, the most promising encounter of this round is this one. These two teams have an attacking playstyle, are in good form and are making great campaigns.
Not that Hoffenheim was making a poor campaign, far from that, but the team was staying quiet on the competition.
That’s until their reaction a few rounds ago. They are now unbeaten for 7 matches, with 4 victories and 3 draws in the process.
And that way, the team definitely got on the fight for the continental spots. Now they are already on an Europa League spot, in 6th place, with 46 points, and only 5 points away from a Champions League’s spot.

After last season’s surprise, RB Leipzig maintained their level this season. And now without the surprise factor.
Of course that the two winless matches on the last rounds combined with their rivals’ victories have made them drop to 5th place with 47 points.
But a victory here puts them once again on the fight for a Champions League’s spot.
On the Europa League, the team also made a good campaign but was eliminated by Marseille on the quarter-finals.
RB Leipzig vs Hoffenheim – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The focus is now totally on the Bundesliga and on recovering their Champions League spot.
The odds are crushed but I can only imagine this being a match with goals.
Both Leipzig and Hoffenheim have a lot to fight here and the teams’ styles suggest this will be an attacking match.
